Pierce Brosnan’s Daughter Dies of Ovarian Cancer

Pierce Brosnan has announced the death of his 41-year-old daughter Charlotte last Friday. “On June 28 at 2pm my darling daughter Charlotte Emily passed on to eternal life having succumbed to ovarian cancer,” Brosnan said in a statement. “She was surrounded by her husband Alex, her children Isabella and Lucas and her brothers Christopher and Sean.” Charlotte’s two children are 14 and 8.

“Charlotte fought her cancer with grace and humanity, courage and dignity,” Brosnan’s statement continues. “Our hearts are heavy with the loss of our beautiful dear girl. We pray for her and that the cure for this wretched disease will be close at hand soon. We thank everyone for their heartfelt condolences.”

Brosnan was married to Charlotte’s mother, actress Cassandra Harris, from 1980 until her death in 1991, also from ovarian cancer. Charlotte and her brother Christopher were Harris’ children from a previous marriage. Brosnan adopted the two in 1986 after their father passed away.
